This nut-free nutella recipe is quick and delicious. By using sunflower seeds it’s nut-free!


  • 2 cups raw sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup milk, dairy or nondairy


  1. In a medium non-stick pan, over medium-high heat, toast sunflower seeds, while stirring frequently to avoid burning. Remove from heat and allow sunflower seeds to cool to room temperature before the next step.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor or high-speed blender, process toasted sunflower seeds, stopping intermittently to scrape down the sides of the bowl, for 3 to 5 minutes, until the seeds have turned into a thick, creamy butter.
  3. Add in remaining ingredients and blend for an additional 4-5 minutes, stopping to scrape the sides from time to time, until smooth and creamy.
  4. Store in an airtight container up to two weeks in the fridge.
